As per ETNews, Samsung is planning to add support for Force Touch AKA 3D Touch, but it's not clear if the feature will be centered on the home button or anywhere on the screen. The report from the Korea Herald states that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will feature a pressure-sensitive S-Pen stylus, along with the display having pressure-sensitive capabilities, which is similar to that of Apple Phones. Currently, the tech is used in the Galaxy S8 but is limited to a small area where the Home button usually is positioned.

However, it does raise the question of whether there will be a 128GB mid-tier, or rather a higher-tier storage option of the regular, non-Emperor Galaxy Note 8.

According to a report by South Korea's The Investor, Samsung has added Apple's force touch technology into the Galaxy Note 8.

Rumours abound of the Galaxy Note 8 ahead of its expected August 23 launch and September 15 release, but amongst the details the handset will be capped at 64GB of onboard storage and 6GB RAM.

This was discovered by regular Twitter leaker Roland Quandt, who shared images of the new device in a tweet.

Obviously we'll be bringing you plenty of coverage on launch day, and will let you know when Samsung actually confirms which day it will be.

The reason we know what color variants Samsung will use on its upcoming phablet is because this information has been leaked on Weibo, which is basically the Chinese variant of Reddit. However, the latter may not be present in markets like Russia, Europe and the US.
